Will it be a typical Boro last week of a transfer window, full of initial promise but nothing delivered in the end....

Haha would be classic boro tbf but hope we learnt from Pulis errors where he was offered players early but said no i will wait until end of window to see if anyone better available and then in last week it turns out no one better is up for grabs and player we initially were offered has now gone elsewhere

We will sign at least 1 defender. I'm certain of that. May not be our first choice, but we will get someone to boos the numbers at the back.

Let’s remember this is MFC recruitment... we’re nailed on to sign another CM to play CB 😆

Nothing new this morning really Leicester's local say the move Benkovic has lined up was almost put through last week but got held at the last minute because someone moved the goalposts on Leicesters incoming CB target.

Ignore I have no idea how this happened.

 

 

Second report linking us with talks for Carter Vickers as well they mention the clubs in talks would prefer a loan to buy rather than a purchase as Tottenham apparently want to cash in as he enters his final 18 months.

Just what's being reported... 2 CBs this week which I think makes us a lot stronger than this time in the summer window.

More than happy with Gibbo (loan to buy) plus either of the other 2 mentioned preferably buys or looking to buy for next season.

Love Ayala, but his injury record means we have to seriously think about bringing someone in longer term

once we have proper defenders we can play our best team. atm we are considerably weakened by ayala being out and paddy playing in defence. leaves us less creative and weaker at the back. 

 

begovic/fry ayala gibbo

spence saville paddy tav coulson 

roberts

fletch

thats a better team by miles. we'll win quite a few with them on the pitch.

Thought he was a keeper 😉

He's a keeper but he can also play right back.

    • We have an official Fifa Esports player now! he's currently guided us into the last 8 of the Ultimate Quaran Team tournament being run.   He has beaten Huddersfield, Walsall, Central Coast Mariners & VVV Venlo so far.
    • The Irish health department released this graph today showing the effects of social distancing and lockdown. It's interesting as (if accurate, and I have no reason to think otherwise) Ireland should be looking at about 15000 cases today but we are currently just shy of 3000 cases. Looks like we are flattening the curve here before we've hit critical saturation of the hospitals.       
    • A new study by from Imperial College London estimates that up to 2.7% of the UK population may have been infected so far - that's about 1.8m people if it's correct.  It's a statistical model though so you have to keep that in mind.  Also says that between 20,000 and 120,000 lives might have been saved across the 11 European countries they were looking at thanks to the measures put in place so far 👍
    • A quick addition to this interesting question, probably for the older supporters in part 1, but everyone who has travelled to support in part 2. part 1 when answering the original question I found that our time at the Riverside has been filled with great goals but when thinking about it I found that the goals that made me most exhilarated and hyper in my celebrations nearly all came at Ayresome Park, now I’m old enough to have been an active supporter over the 2 grounds but I do believe the sheer joy and communal togetherness of a Boro goal at Ayresome beats that at the Riverside. part 2 I also chose a goal scored away from home too, and I was wondering if anyone felt that goals scored at home or away brought out different feelings of joy and excitement. For me, I’ve been on many a thankless away trip but there is something genuinely special when you score away from home, whether it be a Bernie Tap in or a Karambeu missile like he did at Valley Parade, there all special but an away goal is like a good pint that comes with a chaser imo. You can never count on them but when they come everyone of them is welcome.
